Hingham Shipyard Car Accident – An accident that took place on Route 3A in Hingham, Massachusetts, close to the shipyard on Sunday evening resulted in the death of a driver who, according to the local police, was driving in a dangerous manner, which caused the collision. Someone apparently called the Hingham police station shortly before 4:45 o’clock in the afternoon to report that an automobile heading westbound on Lincoln Street was “all over the road.” Just as the police were coming closer to the scene of the accident, a collision involving a BMW took place near the intersection of Shipyard Drive and another road.
The responding officers found the driver locked inside his vehicle, and an official medical examiner pronounced him dead at the scene of the accident. This is according to the police. There was only the driver and himself in the BMW; no one else was present. While the man’s loved ones are being informed of the circumstance, the man’s name has not been made public at this time.
The first investigation that was carried out by the police has revealed that the BMW was traveling westbound on Lincoln Street when it crossed over Shipyard Drive, drove across the sidewalk, and collided into the base of a substantial traffic signal pole.
As a direct consequence of the occurrence, pieces of the vehicle were strewn all the way across Lincoln Roadway and onto the grassy area that borders the street, where they caused a fire to start. The grass fire in Hingham was extinguished by the firefighters, as reported by the local law enforcement. No other vehicles were harmed in any way by this incident.
According to photographs provided by the police department, the roadway was littered with debris, and the engine block from the vehicle was discovered on the sidewalk adjacent to it. On the evening of the incident, a portion of Lincoln Street was closed until 9:15 p.m. in order to aid the on-scene investigation and cleanup work. This was done in order to keep the public safe.
